I am so happy that you all liked the first two Arica posts – the highlights of Kenya and Tanzania – so now I am going to start digging in to my national park by national park deep dive. To be honest, over the course of our two week safari we saw much better animals than we did in Lake Manyara National Park but to be honest, there are some great animals to be seen. The park is not that large and two thirds of it is covered by a shallow soda lake and the rest is a combination of grasslands and thick woods. This interesting typography meant it it was the best place to see baboons on our trip – take a look!
The real highlights of the Lake Manyara National Park are the incredible hippos though. There is a massive pond that your jeep drives through. The dozens of hippos are quite active and according to a few sources it is one of the places you can view them at the closest range in Africa which I have to say, might possible be true.
Which of these animals would you most like to see in person?
